Here's this weeks Hop question: Right this instant, what book are you dying to get your hands on (past, present or future)?
Oh, good one! I have just been thinking I'd like to purchase the collected works of Rudyard Kipling. For me, the author's name alone conjures up the vibrant colors, spicy foods and colorful bazaars of India. To read Kipling, is to be swept away to a different time and space and exotic locale. Everyone is familiar with The Jungle Book and Kim but my favorite story is Kipling's Rikki-Tikki-Tavi having read it as a very young bibliophile. I recall that I was mesmerized by the actions of a very brave little mongoose and I've never forgotten the story.
Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.
Have a great weekend!
